Manufacturer's Description

The funky 527 Rainbow comes in five vibrant colours – orange, blue, pink, black and green. But the real surprise comes when you discover how much is packed into its tiny frame.

There’s a nifty little camera with 4x zoom – perfect for close-ups of your friends. And the self-timer means you can join in too. Like music? You’ll love the FM radio. There’s even an MP3 player – plug in a 1GB memory card to store masses of your favourite tunes.

At just £29.36, the 527 is a great value phone. So the only thing left to decide is which colour works best with your outfit
